Strange referee

22 07 2016

Jamie got a reply back from Animal Behaviour today (after we revised it in June): basically all good, save for one referee who has this vague misgiving: “as undeniably competent as the work is overall, I still feel that the authors have covered one of my eyes and that I’m not being encouraged to see something very important”.

That’s it – no more clues. We’ve had some strange referees’ comments in our time (e.g. just recently this and this), but have never had to counter a nebulous statement of distrust before. Hmmm. It did remind me we should publicly archive the data. Hoping that works (and that really, they are just envious of Jamie’s lovely results!)
